Hello Chris --

Yes, it’s very cool that these sessions will be available shortly for people to 
view.  My sessions were excellently presented so I can assume the others were, 
too.  The Q&A by participants in my sessions were likewise stimulating — it’s 
really good stuff!  Even in the videos you can meet new people working in 
cohousing.  

It’s worth the time and the money.

Hey — other folks on this list who attended — what do you think?  How were your 
sessions?  What session would you recommend?  What were your takeaways?

Best —

When Isaac Newton stayed home to avoid the 1665 plague, he discovered the Laws 
of Gravity, Optics, and he invented Calculus
